The sport of FlingGolf is being pushed as what ‘snowboarding is to skiing’. Played on the same courses as the regular sport of golf, players do not strike the ball in a traditional manner, but instead ‘fling’ the ball with the FlingStick in a manner similar to lacrosse or jai alai.
The caveat with FlingGolf is the low cost barrier of entry. Players are not required to have a great deal of equipment. A FlingStick is the only required piece of equipment to play the sport.
Played almost exactly the same as a regular game of golf, this sport is growing and even has backing of a former National Golf Course Owners Association President.
